« Dansby to miss second preseason game, eyes Sept. 9 | Main | Dolphins are not ready for the regular season »

Live blog of Dolphins vs. Falcons (plus pregame info) here

Guard Artis Hicks is out with a neck injury. John Jerry starts at right guard, as I reported yesterday. Kevin Burnett (back) is not playing so Gary Guyton starts for him. And as I previously read on this blog, Karlos Dansby (knee) also isn't playing while Austin Spitler takes his spot.

The rest of the Dolphins scratches tonight:

David Garrard (knee), Kelcie McCray (foot), Kevyn Scott (leg), Jonas Gray (knee), Burnett (back), Dansby (knee), Lydon Murtha (foot), Tony McDaniel (leg) and Brian Hartline (leg).

The Murtha injury is interesting in that he missed much of last season with a foot injury. It is unknown if it's the same foot but this is not good.

Vontae Davis is scheduled to play so you can now totally discoun the idea he's going to be traded in the next day or so.

And finally, we have a live blog going this evening. I'll meet you in the comments section at kickoff.

Last week, Jake Locker had a QB rating of 17.
add back the 5 drops, and Tanny would be better than 40.
\He's made amore than a few bad decisions on throws. HE'S A ROOKIE, and an inexperienced omen at that, but the most upside.

If you're looking for improvement ... the defense has shown it.

i like thill but sad watching qbs drafted much later looking so much better, foles and wilson look like vets

Really like seeing Wake and OV meeting up at the QB!

Should NEVER have cut Polite! Another JI move, I dont care for Ireland!

2nd string defense stopped Atlanta's 1 string offense, that's encouraging. As the season progresses Tannehill will get better and maybe another WR besides Bess will get his head outta his ass and catch something.

The intensity on the D is MUCH better today!! Even Sean Smith played like a man, with positive body language!!!!

Are some here being paid by the 1972 Team? I wouldn't doubt it.

A Couple quick Questioms
#1 Is Armando at the stadium or hat home drinking Jonny Walker Black label
@2 Will armando Address the issue of Odin and his stalkers.

locker look good yesterday

Armando ask for toughs on deffense... Just one sentence:
Forgive us Mike Nolan!!!

Superphin... they just want to sell tickets and papers.. they know the obvious part of it... just they dont care!!... 1-15 wanna bet??

Some guy on NFL.com said Miami should trade Bush for Wallace...Interesting idea...We have Thomas, Slaton, Miller...Since Ireland gave up a bunch of draft picks to move up and draft Thomas, it would make sense to make him a starter...I would think...

The D has look good especially the DBacks
Offense not so good!

very true Yesterday. and the little college experience he had doing it def shows.

Aaaaaaahhhhhh!!! Didn't connect but I like timing and effort!

Ross is NOT media savvy Mando.

Doofus Ross on TV now

offense obviously didnt like change of pace from 3 and out and now ross is gushing over tanny...lol

NO TV sound in pressbox. What did Ross say?

Mando can you ask Ross when he is selling the team.

Mando is home writing his next article entitled...

"Tannehill has no help because Ireland can't find any acorns. Tannehill is the next Dan minus the Marks Brothers. Philbin > Shula"

Not sure if he can fit all that in the headline though. But he will try I'm sure.

Strange Player selection by Philbin today.

If we had waited until next year to start Tannehill, basically we probably dont see much more than tonight. But, our ecievers have had much to do with it.

With a real recieving corps Tannehill's number would be far better tonight.


owens 2 more dropped passes, hes gonna be cut. will any other team pick him up??

NO TV sound in pressbox. What did Ross say?

Nothing intellegent.

philbin calls the plays?

in answer to your question, our defense appears to be playing a LOT faster this week.

Ross, save the Dolphins! SELL THE TEAM!!


You havent missed anything. Ross hasnt said anything more than you yourself have already said. And the same old stuff he repeats over and over at every interview.

NO TV sound in pressbox. What did Ross say?

Posted by: Armando Salguero | August 24, 2012 at 09:25 PM

what does he ever say..this team is GREAT..tanny is the right man for the job..look at all the fans excited in their seats *stops to count on two hands*...what else is new!!!

"I don't think we have any choice" - Ross in response to question about moving home games to 1pm. "hopefully it gets us more wins [chuckles]"

Me: [not laughing]

yeah, he's spouting a lot of dull generalities.

Our 2nd and 3rds against their 1sts.


Ross is a cheap SOB

Almost don't count

Phins78, who knows? Rest of our lives? I wouldn't bet against it. The last time we won a playoff game our starting RB was Lamar Smith...Like 10 years ago or something...If I would of told you back then it would be at least another decade or more until we win another one, would you have believed me?

Wow Carroll! Need to keep seeing that.

as long as Ross keeps Ireland, we will suck

Armando changes as much as Flipper YG.

Seems Griese left the bo when Ross came in. Is Ross' b/o or breath?

Another Dolphin blowout.

Ross is more of a Idiot then Odin.

lamar smith vs colts in over time. mcduffie was huge. ran smith something like 42 times. was worthless next week vs raiders, got killed

another td pass by wilson, making me sick watching this kid play

Dolphins are pathetic. LOL

The Fans are leaving LOL

If we dont score on this next possession this game is a wrap for the Falcons.

It's obvious that Philbin is hiding something for the Season.

Russell Wilson 3rd TD

Hey look ross.. A PLAYMAKER!!!! take notes!!!

Still think our D-Backs are all 2 stringers. The great QB'S will shred us...wish we made upgrades there.

Damn this looks like a 4 and 12 team. Sighhhh

Another loss. Oh my.

I hear you oscar. I was thinking the same thing, wondering why L Miller didn't get any touches in the 1st half.

Armando only interested in $.

Mando, Ross is just not smooth, doesn't seem to comfortable, doing better now. He was talking up Philbin expressing his confidence in him and the direction the team is taking. Griese commented on how when he played they used to look forward to 1 o'clock games, how he's glad that we've got a lot of 1o'clock games this season, and Ross breaks in and says, "I don't think we had any choice!" ( pretty funny ) anyway he added that they wanted to improve the fans experience all around. Team as well as the park and it's amenities. Fan experience is important to him, that it, in a nutshell.

good job marcus...DOH!!!!!

Tannehill reminds me of Pat White.

Still think our D-Backs are all 2 stringers. The great QB'S will shred us...wish we made upgrades there.

What? That was Ryan against our 2nd, 3rds and 4ths.

According to you Ryan is great. remember? We were supposed to take him instead of Long?

Ha Ha! The announcers are even pointing it out. Ryan could only score against our scrubs.

Another Bone head play by Thigpen in the return game.

He just cut himself.
